Difference Between Cisco GLC-T and GLC-TE

26. october 2017 at 13:40
GLC-T and GLC-TE are all Cisco 1000BASE-T SFP types. And they are used in plenty of networking environment. Both the models have quite a similarity like supporting Auto negotiation, 10/100/100 auto negotiation speed, scalability up to length of 100 m which equals 328 ft in addition to Auto MDI/MDIX feature set. We all know that GLC-T has been announced end of sale and end of life last year. And the new GLC-TE is the replacement for the GLC-T. So what's the difference between them? You may find answer in this post.
From the chart above, we can see that GLC-T works with commercial temperature range (0 to 70℃) while SFP-GLC-TE works in Extended temperature range (-5 to 85℃). In general, non-extended temperature range SFP/SFP+'s are intended to be used within a data centre, or at least indoors - such as between a switch and a server. The extended temperature range units tend to be optics, and are intended to be used with fibre that goes outside of the building (such as between buildings) where there is not a nice temperature controlled environment.

Details for SFP Operating Temperature Range: COM, EXT and IND
Operating temperature range:
  • Commercial temperature range (COM): 0 to 70℃ (32 to 158℉)
  • Extended temperature range (EXT): -5 to 85℃ (23 to 185℉)
  • Industrial temperature range (IND): -40 to 85℃(-40 to 185℉)
  • Storage temperature range: -40 to 85℃(-40 to 185℉)

Since GLC-T was replaced by GLC-TE, GLC-TE modules are re all you'd need for Gigabit Ethernet in most of networks and they cost less as well. Fiberstore (FS.COM) provides all Cisco compatible SFP modules. Every SFP module in FS.COM was tested to ensure 100% compatibility, but only cost a small fraction of name-brand alternatives.
